Sharp and Toshiba coming out with 4k Ultra HD TVs

I guess everyone is doing it now, but I’m not sure if get all the fuss.

The Ultra HDs look really clear if you’re standing close to the screen. If you’re at normal seating distance, will they be that much better than HD?

Only one way to find out, of course… see one at the store.

Toshiba to halt domestic television production, as has Hitachi

In light of falling prices (and falling profits), electronics giant Toshiba has halted domestic production of televisions and will focus on more profitable ventures with an eye to double their operating profit by 2014-2015.

Hilarious article title includes "Asian giants wrestle"

I would post this article because of the content about televisions and the new OLED, and also because of the references to several brands that we service like LG, Samsung, Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba and Sharp.

But it's the title of the article that I keep enjoying:

"Analysis: As technology shifts, Asian giants wrestle for TV control"

For someone with my imagination, I am picturing giant asians wrestling over a huge remote control, and hopefully now you are, too.

P.S. It's a very informative article on the subject.

Combined with a Japanese government-funded group (INCJ), these three major manufacturers have joined forces to produce small and medium-sized LCD touchscreens for automobile and mobile markets.

Samsung gains serious lead in LCD TV sales competition

The top 5 sales leaders for fourth quarter 2011 were (in order from highest to lowest):

Samsung - 23.6%

Vizio - 15.4%

LG - 12.4%

Sony - 8%

Toshiba - 7.8%

Of course, it should be kept in mind that in a previous post we listed how LCD sales are flattening in the U.S., so this is sales shares of a shrinking market.
